Dakota for Ginny...

I love the modern/graphic way this pen & ink turned out - a birthday gift for my sister, Ginny, of her sweet dog, Dakota.  It can be challenging to get a good photo of a black/dark colored animal, so I did a little photo shoot with Dakota while he was laying in front of a bright window - with me on the laying on the floor, as well, trying not to block the light (and him: wondering what the hell I was doing : )  I decided to do more of a line drawing for this one, instead of drawing in the large amounts of black fur (which would make for a 'heavier' drawing in the end) - and to highlight his expressive eyes with a pop of color.
